Default 95 Civic EX (D16Z6) Gasket Repair - Im completely idiot to this!

I'm totally new an idiot to repair and maintenance, so I apologize in advance if this topic has been appearing in this thread repeatedly. I seeked around the help and faq's before posting, so please bear with me. I recently got a totally stock 95 Civic EX (D16Z6) automatic coupe with a blown head gasket. The previous owner reports the car overheated last summer, and it blew the head gasket then. It was repaired (i don't have details yet as of who fixed it, and how). Anyways, the car began to get hot on him again about 3 weeks ago, but he turned it off before the temp. needle got too high. The head gasket still blew. I already bought the head gasket, valve cover gasket, int/exh manifold gaskets, and the timing belt, all from Honda. I have disconnected both the intake and exhaust manifold off the head.
My questions:

Q: How do I loosen the timing belt tensioner? Do I need to remove the driver side motor mount to replace the t-belt? Is it necessary to mill the head? How much milling is too much? What's the proper loosening head bolt sequence? Do I need to buy new head bolts too? How many pounds of torque should I put on the head bolts? What's the proper sequence? Does the forum have a favorite Honda dealer to get parts from? Anything else I should know? If I turn the AC button on with the engine off and the ignition on, are BOTH (rad and condenser) cooling fans supposed to kick on, or only one?
Thanks in advance and sorry about the long, rambling message.

In this one, you would be really needing some good honda repair in this one. It is good that you have asked here, rather than completely doing something that you don't know. Try to really make things sure firsts, then the rest will follow. Hope that all would be well with that one!
